There are no further plans to take COVID measures at schools

The government is out of strategies to pass extra regulations in order to ensure the safety of teachers in schools, despite the rising COVD-19 cases. In an interview with Telegraaf, the education minister Arie Slob stated “it is very important that children get as many lessons at school as possible,” Slob further added “and is it safe to do so, according to the Management Outbreak Team. The unions have urged for an emphasized focus on difficulties caused by the pandemic in schools.

A research survey held by a teaching union “Leraren in Actie” showed that up to 80% of teachers are concerned about the environment at schools. Most of the teachers said that it is impossible to keep the 1.5-meter rule in the procedure, especially in full-time classes. Reports published by Nieuwsuur and BD Dataplan this weekend, mention that since August coronavirus cases were spotted in 342 out of 648 Dutch secondary schools. The figure is grounded on the analysis accumulated by public information and school communications. Among the 342 schools, 44 had more than 10 COVID-19 cases and seven schools so far have been temporarily closed because of the outbreak.

Schools in the north commenced new sessions on Monday after the half-term autumn holidays, this was followed by schools in the rest of the country, a week later. The new lockdown was more focused on cafes and bars, and additional limitations on group sizes, but schools were not to be affected. This is because they are too significant to close, said by the prime minister Mark Rutte at a press conference
